Whilst being in the midst of the promotional trail for their participation at this year’s Eurovision. Slovenia’s Eurovision 2023 representatives Joker Out has released the English version of their entry “Carpe Diem” on streaming platforms.
Written in the same session as the original version
Speaking about “Carpe Diem” the band talked about the response to their entry, and talked about how the English version of the song came about:
“The response from the media and fans to the original in Slovenian are overwhelming. People like it, we were surprised how many of them even sang it with us at the concert in Barcelona on Saturday, but they were asking us a lot what the lyrics are all about. We expected this to happen, so we rewrote and recorded it in English at the same session in Hamburg as the original. It’s not a direct translation, but the message and vibe are the same.
